St. Hedwig
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Dear Family of Mary!
Today is a special feast day, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, to whom Jesus revealed His Sacred Heart, so full of love for mankind. In a vision in 1673 Jesus said to St Margaret Mary, "My divine Heart is so inflamed with love for mankind ... that it can no longer contain within itself the flames of its burning charity and must spread them abroad by your means." St. Margaret was given the task for telling the world about Jesus' Sacred Heart, and establishing the First Friday devotions.
We sinners are greatly comforted by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, for in it we find forgiveness, consolation and rest. As our world grows ever colder, there is limitless warmth in Jesus' Sacred Heart. We can take refuge in Him, knowing that He can take care of every problem and need.
Our Lady in Medjugorje has encouraged us to consecrate ourselves to the Heart of Jesus. Here is a beautiful message she gave us:
 "Dear children! My invitation that you live the messages which I am giving you is a daily one, specially, little children, because I want to draw you closer to the Heart of Jesus. Therefore, little children, I am inviting you today to the prayer of consecration to Jesus, my dear Son, so that each of you may be His. And then I am inviting you to the consecration of my Immaculate Heart. I want you to consecrate yourselves as parents, as families and as parishioners so that all belong to God through my heart. Therefore, little children, pray that you comprehend the greatness of this message which I am giving you. I do not want anything for myself, rather all for the salvation of your soul. Satan is strong and therefore, you, little children, by constant prayer, press tightly against my motherly heart. Thank you for having responded to my call." (October 25, 1988)

And here is a prayer of consecration that Our Lady gave to Jelena Vasilj:
Consecration to the Heart of Jesus
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)

O Jesus, we know that You are sweet (Mt. 11:29).
That you have given Your heart for us.
It was crowned with thorns by our sins.
We know that today You still pray for us
so that we will not be lost.
Jesus, remember us if we fall into sin.
Through Your most Sacred Heart,
make us all love one another.
Cause hatred to disappear among men.
Show us Your love.
All of us love You.
And we desire that you protect us with Your
Heart of the Good Shepherd.
Enter into each heart, Jesus!
Knock on the door of our hearts.
Be patient and tenacious with us.
We are still locked up in ourselves, because we
have not understood Your will.
Knock continuously, Oh Jesus.
Make our hearts open up to you,
at least in reminding us of the passion
which you suffered for us. Amen
May we draw close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus with humility and love. Jesus is our only hope!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
